    I need some advice on putting lights out for our peafowl. It's going into the teens and 20's tonight and we are worried about them having some warmth. Is this necessary? Our chickens have lights because some of them are young, but how cold can the peas withstand? Thanks for any and all replies.

    Looks like you have ib so they will be fine without heat. If they have a place to get out of the wind.

    Now greens or high % spslding need heat.

    I have had peacocks for 3 years now.When they were young they were in a coop.Now they are in a covered pen with perches.Last year they did fine.Did we get below -0 last year in Ohio? Should I put a light out for them?

    Hun a light ain't gonna do a thing, as long as they can get out of the wind they will be fine, mine roost in the tree's in all kinds of nasty weather and i have never lost a one to the weather.
    Please excuse the previous post, that is a dear friend that passed away and he pops up in a topic on holidays and days i think about him.
